Nelson Rigg CL-1040-TP Jumbo Tail Bag
I really like this tail bag. Its big enough to carry a weekends worth of gear or additional gear for a longer trip with the side bags I have. And it fits a full face helmet when expanded.

6500 highway miles with no issues or wear
Chicago to Seattle and Seattle to Phoenix were the bulk of the miles. Works perfect on the rear seat pad of my FJR. Dry with the cover in the rain. Hard rain for 2 days and speed and not a drop. Excellent product and easy to use. With this bag and my paniers I could travel indefinitely with everything I need. I actually have room for more if I want it. Also works as a backrest for me on the FJR.

good tailbag for the money!
tail bag is a nice addition to the saddlebags I purchased earlier.....when I unzip the expansion zipper I can fit my helmet inside....and there are ALOT of pockets and storage space, hopefully I will be able to go on some trips and pack them to see actual space for storage.....should be good for what trips I will be taking

bought this bag for longer trips on my FJR. Not a huge fan of hard top cases so I tried this one.
Size is deceiving, when expanded it holds a ton of stuff.
Connection to the bike is simple, quick and easy with the mounting straps.
Rain cover works well, rode in the rain for 3 hours and my computer and clothes were dry as a bone.
Quality and finish is top notch, for the money it's well worth it!

Great bag, perfect for my need
This bag fit my needs perfectly. Very well constructed and proved itself on a two week trip through all types of weather!

Great bag at a good price
Basically a great bag. Good quality materials/construction and functional design, TONS of space compared to most other bags but still maintains a pretty aerodynamic low profile and it looks streamlined once its on. Keeps its shape when empty, which I like, and the straps are awesome, waaay better than bungee cords. My biggest complaint is that it has a soft bottom, which wouldn't be a big deal normally, but with a tail bag this size unless you have a very wide, flat tail section the sides of the bag (which extend a good few inches over the sides of my Monster 796) will pull over and down around the sides of your seat when you cinch it down, even when full, making it impossible to get a snug fit...unless you have it full of square plates the exact size and shape of the bag. You want a tight fit so it doesn't move around back there and to get it right I had to fabricate a little mounting deck out of an old lunch tray and that did the trick, but it was kind of a time consuming hassle. Not exactly plug and play, in my case at least. This could be solved easily by including an aluminum or plastic hard bottom plate sewn into the bag, but I suppose that would add significant cost, too. Anyway, now that I've got it dialed I have no complaints. Great bag.
